Having for the last 15 years lived in Germany, Holland and now France my language skills are incredible. Not to mention my knowledge of Latin, Greek and Arabic. So some might say amazing. Daughter Feli who is virtually fluent in all but German, but understands it and is currently teaching herself Japanese... always screams, whenever I demonstrate my remark-able linguistic skills, "Talk English!!!!! :grrr:" so I am stuck with my common unexciting dyslexic English. Which luckily everyone else speaks... so I assume :t:. I call my foreign language Nederdeutchfrankish as it borrows heavily from all 3 and usually in the same sentence :hi:, biggest bugbear is my pronunciation in all three segments is a little bit accented, so I am never surprised by the blank looks I get :thud: . But despite this remarkable failure in my persona I still dislike JardiniÃ¨re... but I guess then that I must oblige the majority view and add Jardiniere to the SU descriptions when the shop site switches to reference only. :smg:
p.s. In Greek(Cretan) I know Glikristo, Arabic Bayt (took 6 months of evening classes to learn that one) and Latin ( :huh2: ).
